Combination Wave Simulator

Surge pulses occur due to direct or indirect lightning strokes to an external (outdoor) circuit. This leads to currents or electromagnetic fields causing high voltage or current transients. Another source for surge pulses are switching transients originating from switching disturbances and systems faults.
Due to the characteristic of the phenomenon nearly every electrical and electronical device may suffer from such lightning events which justifies the necessity of surge tests being widely performed. Surge voltage can reach several thousands of volts and surge current is seen to reach several thousands of amps.

VCS 500N10 – Combination wave simulator for 10kV/5kA

The VCS 500N10 combination wave simulator generates surge voltages up to 10kV and surge currents up to 5kVA as it is required for components testing (e.g. overvoltage protection for telecommunication devices). To apply the surge pulse to power supply lines an external coupling/decoupling network either single phase or three-phase can be connected. The coupling modes and the source impedance are set automatically controlled by the VCS 500N10.
Fail inputs are offered as standard for DUT monitoring purposes. Peak values of voltage and current are shown in the display and these values are transferred to the software for reporting.
To comply with safety regulations the VCS 500N10 is equipped with a contact to control warning lamps and with a safety interlock.
Pre-programmed Standard Test routines allow highest user convenience. Still the VCS 500N10 offers the Quick Start test routine where parameters can be changed on-line during the test to evaluate the susceptibility level of an individual DUT.

iec.control Software for control and documentation

Outstanding user convenience, clearly structured windows and operation features, EM TEST’s comprehensive standards library along with the flexibility to easily generate user specific test sequences are the main features of iec.control software. The software will be automatically configured in accordance with the connected EM TEST generators. Extensive reporting capabilities help the user to create test reports that meet international requirements.
The iec.control is supported by Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. Remote control is achieved either via Ethernet or optical interface with USB connector at the PC side.
The iec.control supports various interfaces for the communication to external measuring devices.

MS 100N – magnetic field coil for power-frequency and pulsed magnetic fields

The MS 100N is a 1m x 1m magnetic field coil as specified in IEC/EN 61000-4-8 and IEC/EN 61000-4-9. Its design allows easy moving of the coil. The field coil is adjustable in height and allows for 360degree rotation.
To generate power-frequency magnetic fields in the lower range the current transformer MFT 30 is used while high-field strength above 100 A/m up to 1000 A/m requires the MFT 100 current transformer.
